Samavar Definition

Samavar is a heated metal container traditionally used to boil water and make tea(in a tea pot on top) in Iran, as well as in other Central, South-Eastern, Eastern European countries, Kashmir and in the Middle-East.The word Samavar, often mistakenly pronounced Samovar consists of two Persian words Sam and Avar meaning Poison-Taker.Though traditionally heated with coal or charcoal, many newer Samavars use electricity and heat water in a similar manner as an electric water boiler. Antique Samavars are often displayed for their beautiful workmanship.Samavar culture has an analog in Iran, and expatriates everywhere maintain it. In Iran, Samavars have been used at least for two centuries and electrical, oil-burning or natural gas-consuming Samavars are still being used everywhere. Iranian craftsmen used Persian art to produce artful Samavars. The Iranian city of Boroujerd has been the main centre of making Samavars and a few workshops are still producing hand-made Samavars. Boroujerd’s Samavars are often made with German silver which is a part of its famous Varsho-Sazi art. Samavars of Boroujerd are often shown in Iranian and Western countries' museums as a part of Iranian art.
